After quite a few forays to the base of Bridal Veil Falls in the Blue Mountains, the conditions after dawn this morning finally allowed a study up close to the cliff wall - no wind and no spray. This is only a small part of the face of this massive waterfall, and in times of rain, standing here would be physically impossible. For a wider shot further back, taken earlier this year, please see "Tears of the Bride".
